Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, March 13, 2018

There are numerous lawyers in the news in the case (or cases) of Donald Trump, and their stories tell a tale about how this president views the law and the role of his legal advisers. Two particular stories -- involving White House counsel Don McGahn and personal lawyer Michael Cohen -- show what the president expects from his counsel. In others, the president has taken the different route of ignoring legal counsel altogether. None of what emerges from these reports is reassuring about the rule of law in this government. And it is not helpful to the president as he contends with the special counsel's investigation.

i can kinda' sympathize with trump on this...as a career crook i've had occasion to need an attorney and really the only ones that were of value to me were ones that i could speak freely with. your lawyer isn't supposed to talk crime with you and a lot of them won't, but a lot of them will and that's who you hire. that's always been his client relationship, jesus, he started out with roy cohn and that, in and of itself, should explain a helluva' lot. he doesn't have any experience with lawyers who have an agenda that may run counter to his. he thinks that he should get to be a president like putin...not like our other 44. god he's a doofus
